    If you have not done so yet, when the initiall "openSUSE Installer" menu appears (with the various install options), select to do a "Check Installation Media". If it fails that check, then you obtained a bad CD.

    Also, if the media is ok, and if a normal boot fails, then in that same menu, press F5 (Kernel Default) and try either:
    * No ACPI,or
    * No local APIC, or
    * Safe Settings .

    Also, what are the specifications of the PC that you are trying to boot from / install this on ? If your PC has significantly less than 1 GByte of RAM, you may need to take some special precautions to ensure the installation from a live CD is successful.
